Lucy Air Ambulance for Children is a national charity that flies children up to the age of 16 years between hospitals.
We transfer children for a variety of reasons including:
– to receive specialist care
– to be taken to a hospital closer to home, including for end of life care
– for diagnostic tests
– for specialist surgery, including organ transplants
Our service is provided at no cost to the families of the children involved.
The vision of Lucy AAC is that safe, long-distance air transfers within the UK are available for any child needing one, regardless of distance or cost. We believe every child is important and deserves the right treatment, in the right place, at the right time.
